Karma Spotlight: Silvia Medina

Silvia is a dedicated Karma Yogi at our Flatiron studio and long time practitioner.

How long have you been practicing Yoga?
15 Years

What brought you to our studios?
I took my first Bikram class 15 years ago with my best friend. I immediately fell in love (she didn’t). Within months I signed up to become a permanent karma member and in 2008, I completed a 100-day challenge during one of the busiest times of my life (finishing my MS thesis, working a full-time internship during the day, and a part-time gig nights).  After having my daughter in 2010, I transitioned into a Karma substitute.

What do you enjoy most about being a Karma Yogi?
In my professional life, I’ve held very demanding roles and experienced quite a bit personally. I’ve also lived in six different cities during my karma program tenure. One thing has always remained consistent – the fact that after crawling (sometimes 😀) the flights of stairs, I’ve seen Flatiron as a second home.

How many classes a week do you take?
I currently take an average of five classes a week, but look forward to reinvigorating my practice
by completing a modified 100-day challenge.

Have you tried our bodē360 program? ( 3 hot yoga, 2 hot hiit, 1 yin nidra a week?)
No, not yet. I travel an average of 2-3 days a week in my current role.

What profession are you in?
I manage Hotel Solutions in the Americas region for a company focused on corporate travel spend.

What are your favorite hobbies/passions?
Quality time with family/ friends, reading with my 8-year-old, working out (especially Bikram!)

Thank you, Silvia!
